Spring 5K to Benefit Special Olympics April 23, 2007

Posted by nuspecialo in News.

What: A 5 kilometer race.
When: 10 AM, Sunday, April 29.
Where: NU Lakefill; registration outside SPAC [2311 Campus Drive, Evanston].
Why: For god (Nike, the goddess of victory), for country, and for Special O. Our nation depends on your running shoes. We think Teddy Roosevelt said that.
How: Click this link to sign up for the 5K: Spring 5K Registration.

We invite students on campus and the residents of the Chicagoland area to join us in benefiting Special Olympics. Runners and walkers are welcome and top prizes will be awarded to the top runners for female and male participants. The race will begin at 10am, but registration and check-in starts at 9am. The registration fee is $10 for students and $15 for residents. The first 75 people to register get a free waterbottle. Bib numbers, water, and bagels will be handed out on race day. Please come with your confirmation number. Start your Sunday morning off by helping out a good cause and getting some exercise! All proceeds will go to benefit athletes with disabilities and hosting the Area 5 Special Olympics games. Northwestern University to Benefit Special Olympics is the nation’s oldest and largest student run collegiate Special Olympics organization. In May 2007 we will host over 600 athletes at our 30th annual tack and field games.
